Aasmita took A Levels in Chemistry, Biology, Geography and Psychology. She then went on to study Medicine at Kings College, London.
We asked her if she felt that her time at CTK had helped her get to where she is today – “Absolutely, CTK were very supportive when it came to applying for Medicine. They helped proof read personal statements, set up practice UKCAT tests, practice interviews etc.
“My advice for others looking to go to university is to do your research into what criteria’s universities look for (grades, admission tests, interviews etc) so you know in advance what you need and what to expect when you do actually apply. Many people aren’t aware and sometimes find out too late which is a shame. Check UCAS or university websites.
Open days are useful to see the university itself. Talk to other students studying at the university and see what their experiences have been like and any advice they could offer to you. Extra-curricular activities, whether this is volunteering, part time work or even playing sports try and get involved in stuff outside of college so you have more to talk about on your personal statement. This is useful not just for Medicine but any course as most skills are transferrable (teamwork, leadership, problem solving etc).”
